Information

–  The full MX Vice team are in the Czech Republic. What does that mean? You'll be treated to exclusive interviews, reports, videos, images, opinions, news and much more! Stay tuned to this very site throughout the weekend and we won't disappoint.

–  Do you want to feel closer to the action, but sit on your couch at the same time? Of course you do! Fox MX Manager, the ultimate fantasy experience, is based around the FIM Motocross World Championship for the first time and offers fans the chance to win some incredible prizes each week. It is free to play and incredibly easy to select a team, so what are you waiting for? Fox MX Manager can be played by clicking here.

–  How can you watch the action this weekend? A comprehensive television guide can be accessed on this link, but MXGP-TV is a brilliant alternative! That service, which costs a small fee, will cater to your needs.

Jett Lawrence is one of the biggest stars in the EMX85 division (Sean Ogden)

–  The paddock is bursting with riders from the EMX65 and EMX85 classes this weekend. Eighty riders are registered! The full entry lists for those classes are available elsewhere on this site.

– The Czech Grand Prix is based on a steep hillside that features what is arguably the hardest soil that we come across all year. The circuit, Loket, would be rather treacherous if torrential rain hit it, but that is what is in store this weekend. Thunderstorms are expected all day on Saturday. Did someone say mudder?

– We are back to the regular time zone, CET, this weekend, so we are an hour ahead of the United Kingdom. Nine hours separate us from California, but we are only six ahead of Florida. We are also seven hours behind of those in Sydney.
